Model code of practice for research employment
LERU developed its Model Code of Practice to complement and support the specific requirements of e.g. the European Charter for Researchers. One of the Moral Codes for example is that researchers’ work will be well-supported. In return the university expects e.g. professional service, strong commitment to ethical responsibility of the researchers. The LERU Rectors’ Assembly adopted the concept in 2009: this reflects a shared commitment among LERU members to provide research staff with excellent working conditions within a stimulating and challenging professional environment.
